In the interest of the health and safety of veteran program participants, trainers and staff, Circle of Change class sessions are currently

suspended due to the COVID-19 health crisis.


We will continue to monitor the situation keep all participants notified when classes will restart.  As always, the counselors at the VA are available during this challenging time to support our veterans and lend an ear.  We are looking forward to getting veterans back to class!


Please, don't hesitate to reach out to the VA counselors, if you need help!

We are still accepting referrals and registrations during this time. Please call 815-262-1491, if you have any questions.

Stay safe.
